I really like the program. As I told kkandes there are pros and cons, and I believe the "grass is always greener" once you finally chose a program. I like the small class size, all my professors know me... etc. Then again, I am assertive and I make it this way. Like kkandes I was choosing btw a big name school and APU. APU was the BEST choice for my husband and I. However that being said, it may not be the best choice for everyone. So I would definitely do a pro/con list and really think about what is best for you.
As for concerns, we just did not have a great Fundamentals or Med-Surg prof. Then again I have had amazing professors in other departments. I think this can happen anywhere. When i first got to the school, we had a different director, but now Janet Wessels is the director and she is amazing. She is turing the program around and I have only seen improvements since I have arrived. Issues are lack of organization and last minute changes. Those are very very frustrating but we have learned to roll with the punches.
As for NCLEX, we use the Kaplan course to prepare and I heard the cohort who just finished had a 100% pass rate. So I think it looks good :) every time I take a Kaplan practice test (which we have too after each course) I get better and better scores. so I hope it will work out!! :)
let me know if you have ANY other questions. happy to help :)
